Boise, ID Police increasing winter driving patrols

The Boise Police Department says its officers are stepping up patrols to look for distracted and aggressive drivers, starting now and continuing through the winter.

Boise received its first blast of snow last weekend and, with the holiday-travel season approaching, Boise Police traffic officers will be focusing on enforcement and education around safe driving behavior.

“This is a proactive approach to get people driving in a safe and responsible manner during the holiday season,” said Corporal Kyle Wills. “Already this winter, we have responded to a number of crashes and slide-offs due to icy roads. During the winter months, it’s more important than ever to put down the distractions and drive safe.”
